Aha! It feels so good…. finished my heart for February and am just a few stitches(more or less) from finishing the second redwork preprint block…I know for sure this is an Alex Anderson design…and there are quite  number  of them that have yet to be done. Thgat’s what happens when you buy yardage!


this is the heart for february…the center is machine redwork that was sent to me along with some other squares of machine redwork. I decided to use one of them in the heart..the red dotted fabric is overlaid on the white square and then reverse appliqued down.,then i put a bias strip around the opening to even it out…my stitching wasn;t so good on the reverse part…the shape of the heart was a just a tad…ahem….uneven…then you see the embroidery. On the white square is also  my nickname, embroidered in white so it won;t stand out.



And here is the preprint…i really like this design, of course that just might be because morning glories a favorite flower….
